Isaiah chapter 15

Bible Version
Book
Chapter
Commentary
1
An oracle against Moab: Ar in Moab is devastated, destroyed in a night. Kir in Moab is devastated, destroyed in a night.
2
Dibon went up to its temple to weep at its high places. Moab wails on Nebo and at Medeba. Every head is shaved; every beard is cut off.
3
In its streets they wear sackcloth; on its rooftops and in its public squares everyone wails, falling down and weeping.
4
Heshbon and Elealeh cry out; their voices are heard as far away as Jahaz. Therefore the soldiers of Moab cry out, and they tremble.
5
My heart cries out over Moab, whose fugitives [flee] as far as Zoar, to Eglath-shelishiyah; they go up the slope of Luhith weeping; they raise a cry of destruction on the road to Horonaim.
6
The waters of Nimrim are desolate; the grass is withered, the foliage is gone, and the vegetation has vanished.
7
So they carry their wealth and belongings over the Wadi of the Willows.
8
For their cry echoes throughout the territory of Moab. Their wailing reaches Eglaim; their wailing reaches Beer-elim.
9
The waters of Dibon are full of blood, but I will bring on Dibon even more [than this]-- a lion for those who escape from Moab, and for the survivors in the land.
